Patients’ Day

As part of Leprosy week celebrations, on January 29, 2020, MALC conducted Patients’ Day in the OPD area. On this day every year, people who were once affected by Leprosy perform on various songs and share their experiences when they were afflicted by the ailment; the pain they endured and the encouragement of the staff that transformed their lives positively. With teary eyes, comparing her to a mother, they recall the time spent with Dr. Ruth Pfau. The event is organized collectively with the ward staff. The Chief Guest for the occasion was Ms. Claudia Villani, MALC Benefactor from Austria.
